Practise makes perfect (2)

So you might remember me mentioning wanting to become a National Geographic photographer. Well that's still an option in dreamland so here's me practising some more...

Apparently the only way to get a good close up of a duck is to have a lot of bread on hand. But probably not too much or they end up crowding you and walking over your feet... Seriously, I have webbed footprints on my shoes to prove it.

No name brand...

So I saw a butterfly today. I know this might sound weird but it's the first butterfly that I've noticed in a while. A really long while. It might not be the brightest or most unusual of butterflies, but for some reason I just had to take a picture. I wanted to capture that moment.

It might not be the best of pictures, and it might be a bit blurry. But as I continuously remind myself, I didn't start this blog just to show off my best pictures. Well that wasn't the main point at least. the purpose of this blog is to share with you memories and feelings that I have captured in my lens. And for some reason I want to share this butterfly. I want to share the feelings that I felt when I saw it fluttering by. Of course, I can't really explain those feelings, but you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words...

This was not the picture that I originally intended to post today. My original photograph was kind of busy with quite a few elements and such, but then it occurred to me; life is so busy all the time, that sometimes we need a little peace and calm. So that is why I decided to post this picture. It’s one that I took a while back and I can vividly remember the moment before taking the picture. All I could here were the peaceful sound of waves and the flowers swaying in the breeze seemed to just calm me down and make me forget all my worries. In that moment I didn’t have a care in the world. A lot has changed since I took that photograph. Life is somehow becoming more hectic day by day and I'm glad that I managed to capture a memory of that one moment of peace and tranquillity.

Meet Bob

Meet Bob. He's the friendly school "gargoyle" that resides outside the art classroom. I use the term gargoyle loosely since I don't think he actually qualifies as one, but he's the closest we've got to one. Bob has many leisurely pass-times, including photo-bombing students' photos:)

After the rain...

Don't you just love going outside after it rains? The earth looks bright and refreshed and you see some of the most amazing sights in the sky like rainbows or, in this case, orange clouds. I'm not exactly sure how the clouds appeared orange (I think it might have something to do with the time of day) but all I knew when I saw this was that I had to capture it on my camera. It might not be one of my best, but it is definitely one of my favourite pictures

Practise makes perfect

I've always wanted to become a National Geographic photographer. I'm probably not good enough at this point, but you know what they say; practise makes perfect. So here's me practising.

Autumn Sunset

This is a picture I took awhile back. Whenever I look at it I think of going for walks during autumn with the leaves crunching beneath your feet as you watch the sky turn orange with the sunset. I know, I know it sounds slightly cheesy. But i suppose all the really beautiful stuff do sometimes...

Just thought that before I started posting my photographs I would like to tell you about "Captured Memories". It is a blog that I created for posting photographs that I have taken that remind me of strong memories or that are of actual memories that I hope never to forget. I hope your memory is stirred as well with times from your own past when you view these photographs. Thank you for viewing my blog and don't forget to comment on pictures:)
